Elven Archer II
Not the most imaginative title but then I'm more into the visuals than the words.
You may wonder, "Elven Archer II"; so where's "Elven Archer I"? Well, I started one image and finished an alternate version first. So does that mean this should be numbered as the first one.......or, who really cares.................

Equus sapiens
This is my first completed attempt at creating my own centaur.
It's a combination of the Hivewire horse and Genesis 3 Female. Thanks to some help from kuriosdrachen.deviantart.com/ as well as lots of experimentation and forum trawling, I think I have managed to create a nice blend between the 2 figures.
I initially tried to delete all of the geometry that I didn't need (like G3F's legs, HWHorse's head) but it never "stuck" - after restarting DS, the figures were no longer where they should be and all of the morphs had reverted to default. I found it best to hide the unnecessary parts instead.
This image also shows my first attempt at painting hair (also using sectionals by CWRW from her "The Elegant Equine Mane 'N Tail Pack 3" pack - for both the head and tail); I have a lot to learn/practice, but I think it's not too bad for my first attempt.
In case anyone is curious but doesn't know; the title is derived from the scientific name for the horse and a human................

In Pursuit - Sunset version
An idea that popped into my head whilst playing with Iray materials in Daz Studio (gotta love all those metallic and paint surfaces in Iray!).
Both the JetBike and the Yamaki Rapture/Enforcer bikes already looked great using 3Delight but even better with Iray.
I also played around with depth haze in Iray (Using Marshian's AtmoCam doesn't work on scenes this big); I found that saving out a depth pass under the Iray canvases menu was the way to go...
This version uses a sunset HDRI from the "Skies of iRadiance" packages (as well as a few other strategically placed spotlights) for lighting...
This version required a bit more postwork than my daytime version; mostly the headlight beams, but also adding a bit of extra luminescence to the decorative panels on the bridge supports (the blue panels).
One extra bit of postwork I forgot to mention in the daytime version (guess I'll edit that in a minute) was using Photoshop's relatively new "Spin blur" and "Path Blur" (PS CC 2014 +) to create the spinning wheels on the Yamaki Rapture/Enforcer bike.........
There's another version of the same image that uses a daylight HDRI from the "Skies of iRadiance" package posted here:- erwin0265.deviantart.com/art/I…

Between Shoots
The time is slightly into the future; photographing hot bikes with hot 'chicks' is still popular.............
Only now, our 'hot chick' has just as much circuitry as our hot bike.
This image captures a time between shoots when our model is having a casual chat with the photographer about.............
